Cygnet Woodside provides assessment, treatment and fast stream rehabilitation for men with learning disabilities, associated complex needs and who may have behaviours that challenge.

We provide a safe therapeutic service for nine men who have suffered a recent ongoing acute episode in the community. It also complements acute and secure hospital settings by offering assessment, treatment and rehabilitation as part of a robust care pathway that includes residential and supported living services.

Located in the suburbs of Wibsey in Bradford, the hospital is within close proximity to local services and amenities, including major transport links.

Ongoing assessment and high staffing levels means that we are able to meet the changing needs of service users as they progress through their care pathway, while ensuring their safety is maintained and their independence supported. Regular review meetings involving the service user, their family and professionals are held to review outcomes, set new goals and re-assess support levels as individuals progress.
